This oral history comes from the Oral History Collection (makes sense). The interview conducted by Chris Chrenshaw, is of the former (I think) Pastor/Friar at  Saints Mary and Joseph Catholic Church in Carondelet  Robert Sydlowski. The interview was conducted on November 15th, 1993. The discussion touches on many topics including life in St. Louis growing up, catholic life in St. Louis and baseball.
